The Lure of the Patsy

Lee Harvey Fawkes Faux

I'd like to expand on a couple of points I have made underneath my previous post

In that post I linked to the closing minutes of the sequel to '7/7 Ripple Effect', a film called 'The Nazi Bankers' Crimes - Ripple Effect'. The film ends with a call for the viewer to embrace the producer of the film as The Messiah, accompanied by scenes from the film 'V for Vendetta'

I have repeatedly expressed concerns that the intention behind the entire '7/7 Ripple Effect' project was to promote the messianic pretensions of the person who claims to be its producer and, to that end, '7/7 Ripple Effect' was constructed to appeal to those looking for fables to believe in, rather than those inclined to sceptism. In short, the target market was people capable of unquestioning religious faith. The punchline of the latest ‘Ripple Effect’ film bears this out, in spades

Ultimately, whether this distraction is actively sponsored by the (in)security services, whether shady characters are contributing no more than the occasional helpful nudge, or whether this is solely the work of a wannabe Christ figure and a handful of followers is neither here nor there. The Muad'dib 'op' is a distraction from the research which has torn the Official 7/7 Narrative apart and it assists the corporate media in portraying all ‘conspiracy theorists’ as credulous whackjobs, and not just some of them

And then there’s this whole Guy Fawkes/ V for Vendetta thing which is enjoying much more widespread support and exposure than any scepticism about the Official 7/7 Narrative

I've never liked 'V' very much, which puts me in the same camp as the author of the graphic novel on which it is based, Alan Moore

When I first saw the film I couldn’t quite put my finger on why it bothered me as much as it did. Some initial reading up on my part revealed that the lead actress in the film cited the life of Menachem Begin as an inspiration for her role, which was a clue that at least some of motivations behind the movie were a little short of the pacifistic anarchist ideal (I guess she skipped the chapter on Deir Yassin)

Even if you were to overlook the unsound elements in the film, and I’ll get back to them in a moment, the Guy Fawkes myth itself is deeply unsound

I remember as I young kid not being able to see the connection between the story of Guy Fawkes and the tradition of burning a ‘guy’. I knew Fawkes had been hung so what was the deal with throwing effigies of him on a fire?

And then one night, from underneath a blanket, I saw 'The Wicker Man' and the penny dropped. A little later I found out about the ancient festival of Samhain and the penny resumed its descent. People had been making a racket, lighting fires and burning effigies at the start of Winter for millennia

What ‘The State’ had done was to have co-opted a long-standing festival and transformed it into a celebration of its own perpetuation and glory. It is one thing to stick a Christian church on the site of a pagan temple, an altogether more powerful and enduring stroke of genius to hijack a tradition. If done right the results can outlast any building

Digging even deeper into the Bonfire Night 'celebration', there are plenty of reasons to suspect that the ‘Gunpowder Plot’ itself was a fabrication, that the plot was an example of state-sponsored false flag terror and Fawkes a patsy. The Elizabethan/ Jacobean state demonstrated on many occasions that it was more than capable of such intrigue. Except back then it was Catholics who served the role of the ‘Enemy Within (and without)’ now filled by Muslims

The irony that protesters today might be drawn to a patsy myth is compounded by the fact that even though they, almost without exception, pay homage to the meme of non violent revolution they, again almost without exception, refer to the imagery promoted in a corporate-produced, big budget motion picture which is violent to the core

For a film which is lauded by supposed proponents of passive resistance, 'V for Vendetta' does depict, with relish, an awful lot of people being stabbed, poisoned, blown up and shot

Of course, most knife vs. gun fights turn out as expected but you're more than welcome, positively encouraged, to try

The Fawkes story is an establishment-promoted myth and that myth's most widely hyped contemporary manifestation promises, Hollywood style, that all 'we' have to do is kill the bad guy or blow up the Death Star and everything's going to be just fucking peachy

Personally, I doubt it

Ho hum, maybe in 400 years time 'anti-capitalist' (sic.) protesters will be wearing Mohamed Atta masks to demos...

Webster Tarpley makes the same point about Guy Fawkes as a false flag op in his 9/11 Synthetic Terror book. He quotes a 19th century historian on The Gunpowder Plot who could just as easily have been writing about 9/11:
'When we examine into the details supplied to us as to the progress of the affair, we find that much of what the conspirators are said to have done is well-nigh incredible, while it is utterly impossible that if they really acted in the manner described, the public authorities should not have had full knowledge of their proceedings.'

As for them co-opting the Wicker Man festival, the same thing explains, does it not, the fact that we celebrate Easter with a load of eggs, rabbits and other pagan fertility symbolism that has nothing to do with Christ.

Yup, that would be Beltane

though the Catholic Church passed up on having its followers dance joyfully around a large representation of a cock

It's a shame really

Stef said...

and I missed out on Tarpley's trick of occasionally spelling Fawkes as Faux, nice one

I shall steal it now

Anyone here read Paul David Collins?

Stef said...

New to me

There's an extract here

A quick scan turns up nothing new for veteran conspiraloons but it's dated 2002 so I doff my cap to him for putting it out so shortly after 9/11

"In our modern world, discomforting truths are usually discarded in favour of fictions. One such fiction is the idea that terrorists are disenfranchised dissidents who independently generate the wealth and resources necessary for their heinous acts. Such is the contention of Professor Mark Juergensmeyer. In his article, "Understanding the New Terrorism", he says that modern terrorism "appears pointless since it does not lead directly to any strategic goal" (p. 158).

Juergensmeyer arrives at this conclusion because he restricts his examination to the visible perpetrators, whose motives may be, in fact, irrational. However, he does not examine the patrons of terrorism. Given the exceptional subtlety and discretion of terrorism's shadowy sponsors, Professor Juergensmeyer may just be oblivious to their existence. On the other hand, he could simply be parroting his fellow academicians in order to maintain the status quo"

There are audio clips from the Collins Bros there. The 'Social Control' clips are absoloonly conspiraheavenly!

The fonting and colour choices on that page are classic retro-loon and smoke The Conspiraloon Alliance's own humble tributes to the genre

"He has also written articles for Paranoia Magazine, MKzine, News With Views, B.I.P.E.D.: The Official Website of Darwinian Dissent and Conspiracy Archive"

Excellent, I'm looking forward to this

And the concept of a conspiraloon double act is pure genius

...and remember, if you don't have to squint to read it, it's probably disinformation

They (allegedly) whacked Osama Bin Laden on Walpurgisnacht.

Its a huge pagan/occult festival. Just as important as All Hallows Eve to practitioners evidently.
